Yemen – Attack on two journalists in Aden on Nov. 9, 2021


France condemns the targeted attack against journalists Rasha al-Harazi and Mahmoud al-Otmi in Aden on November 9. It must be thoroughly investigated.

At a time when the freedom of the press and the safety of journalists are under increasing attack, France reiterates the need to protect them worldwide.

France reaffirms its commitment to press freedom and to the safety of journalists and all those whose voice adds to the public debate. The Minister will promote this goal at the meeting of the Partnership on Information and Democracy that will be held during the Paris Peace Forum.
